Dr. Nguyet “Whit” Tau


Nguyet Tau, DMD, CAGS
Diplomate, American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (DABPD)
Fellow, American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (FAAPD)

As a board certified Pediatric dentist, Dr. Tau has always dreamed of working with children. She graduated with honors from Brown University where she received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Studies and Human Health. Afterwards, she taught Science, English, and Math at St. Leo Middle School in Leominster, MA. Her teaching experience reinforced her desire to continue working with children. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from the Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Tau continued onto the Pediatric Dental Residency program, where she now combines her love of teaching and pediatric dentistry as a clinical instructor at her alma mater.

For her very young and highly anxious patients who require a lot of dental treatment, Dr. Tau has hospital privileges that allow her to care for her patients without traumatizing them.  Dr. Tau also offers dental care with nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help ease her patients’ dental stress and anxiety.

Always believing that dentistry should be fun and fearless, Dr. Tau strives to ensure that all her patients are comfortable and at ease in the dental chair. It is her greatest reward to see her patients grow, overcoming their dental fears and having fun at their dental visits.

Dr. Tau combines her love of children and traveling through her various trips around the globe with Kindness in Action, a dental group providing dental treatment to underserved communities around the world. However, she always enjoys returning home to her family and her patients.
